  • Description

    KENYA HAS ADDED ITS PROTEST TO THOSE POURING INTO MOSCOW FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD AT THE MILITARY INVASION OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA BY SOVIET BLOC FORCES.

    YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS MARCHED TO THE GATES OF THE SOVIET EMBASSY IN NAIROBI TO DELIVER A NOTE OF PROTEST TO THE AMBASSADOR.

    THE STUDENTS MARCHED IN PROCESSION THROUGH NAIROBI FROM THEIR UNIVERSITY, PROCLAIMING IN CHANTS THAT INVASION OF CZECHOSLOVAKIA WAS "AN ACT OF IMPERIALISM OF THE VILEST DEGREE."
    THEY CARRIED BANNERS WITH THE INSCRIPTIONS "RUSSIANS GO HOME", AND "WE WANT DUBCEK BACK."
    BY THE TIME THE PROCESSION HAD REACHED THE STOUT IRON GATE SO THE SOVIET EMBASSY, RIOT POLICE WERE ASSEMBLED IN FORCE WAITING FOR THEM, BUT THERE WAS VIOLENCE.

    A DELEGATION OF STUDENTS WAS ALLOWED THROUGH INTO THE EMBASSY WHERE THEY READ AS STATEMENT OF PROTEST TO RUSSIAN AMBASSADOR DMITRY GORYUNOV.

    IN AN AIR OF CORDIALITY, MR. GORYUNOV INVITED THE STUDENTS TO SIT AROUND A TABLE WITH HIM IN THE EMBASSY GROUNDS. HE PROMISED THEIR STATEMENT WOULD BE TRANSMITTED TO MOSCOW.
